local pipes vs. network pipes (to connect to SQL Server)

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
Choosing a Network Protocol (SQL Server 2008 R2) tells: "It is also important to clarify if you are talking about local pipes or network pipes. If the server application is running locally on the computer that is running an instance of SQL Server, the local Named Pipes protocol is an option. Local named pipes runs in kernel mode and is very fast" Well, it is not me who is talking in cited article, I believe so. Should it be understood that "If the server application is running locally on the computer that is running an instance of SQL Server" and configuring/choosing Named Pipes mean running "local Named Pipes"?

How to connect to local instance of SQL Server 2008 Management Studio Express ?

  

I just installed SQL Server 2008 Management studio Express on my Vista machine.

i tried connecting to local machine using :

.\sqlexpress, (local)\sqlexpress, or .\SQLExpress, MyPCNAME\SQLExpress

nothing is working, getting this error:

-----------------------------
Cannot connect to PC-NAME\SQLEXPRESS. A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified)

Can't connect to SQL 2005 Enterprise using Management Studio with Server Name (only (local) works

  
This is a test system, everything running locally & no domains. Win 2003 Ent. Server & SQL Server 2005 Enterprise. I can't log into SQL Server Management Studio using the server name & using either Windows Authentication or SQL login. If I change the name of the server in the drop-down list to "(local)", I connect just fine (both Windows & SQL security modes). Shared Memory, Named Pipes & TCP/IP enabled in both server & client. Remote connections allowed. I have IP adresses (both 127.0.0.1 & external IP) in my hosts file pointing to the server name. Does SQL require a DNS server? This wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that I can't install SQL 2005 SP3 due to authentication failure since there's no way to enter (local) as the server name. SQL tools (management studio, SP install) seem to see the SQL server running but won't authenticate the user through any means other than setting server name to (local). This is driving me crazy!!!

Cannot connect to Sql Server Local Instance

  
Hello allI just installed sql server 2005 to my pc and when i try to log in to the server instance i get an error log in failed for user xxx (error 18456). I browse to the server instance and i keep getting the same error even though i chose windows authentication option during the installation. I restarted the service for the sql server instance (which is running).The only problem i can think about is a problem with permissions but again there should not be any problem there because i logged in as administrator. Any suggestions please!!!

Cannot connect to SQL Server 2005 locally by Windows Authentication, but network connection is succe

  
Cannot connect to SQL Server 2005 locally by Windows Authentication DOMAIN \ myname. But network connection is successful.   But SQL Server Logins contain   BUILTIN \ Administrators, and                                                    BUILTIN \  Administrators contain DOMAIN \ Domain Admins, and                                                    DOMAIN \ Domain Admins contain DOMAIN \ myname.   Creating SQL Server Login with DOMAIN \ myname entail successful local connection.   Removing SQL Server Login with DOMAIN \ myname and creating SQL Server Login with DOMAIN \ Domain Admins do NOT entail successful connection. Cannot connect!                                     &

Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server

  

This was originally posted in the SSIS Forum, but a member of the IS team suggested it be moved here.  "Most recently I got this error (Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) so does this mean that SQL Server is still trying to use named pipes even if I only have TCP/IP enabled in SQL Server Configuration Manager?"

I'm having the same issue, and here's our scenario:

  1. Installed SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition on a machine with WinXP SP2 and enabled remote connections over TCP/IP
  2. Installed SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition on a machine with Win2003 SP1 (remote connections over TCP/IP enabled by default)
  3. Attempted to 'Copy Database' from Developer Edition TO Standard Edition using 'Detach and Attach' method and recieved the error on the Win2003 machine: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server
  4. A

Connect to server with other network credentials??

  

I work from home and need to connect to my employers database server. I am running SQL Server 2008 on my home PC and I am connected remotely to my employers network via vpn. However, if I try to make a connection via windows authentication it's using my credentials I use to log onto my PC and not the credentials I use to connect via vpn. How can I enter my vpn credentials and register the remote server in Server Management Studio?


Thank you...


Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2]

  
Hi

I'm a complete sql/asp.net newbie and want to try this tutorial:
http://beta.asp.net/GuidedTour/

First I installed:
Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition Beta 2

systemsettings\software shows the "sql server 2005 express edition ctp (sqlexpress)" installed

mmc\service shows me the SQL Server (SQLExpress) is running

Following the guided tour I use the commandline, type cmd, and type in the commandbox:
 
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\binn\SQLCMD90" -S "localhost\SqlExpress"

Instead of localhost I also tried computername.smallbusiness.local (thats my fully domain name).

However I always receive the error:

Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [2]

Thank you very much for all your help

Can't connect to local SQL Server 2008 Express edition

  

Hi. I'm on Win7 64 bit and have installed SQL 2008 Express 64 bit. The named instance is "sqlexpress" but when using the SQL Server Management Studio 2005, it won't let me connect. It doesn't see it. When I type in the name and try to connect via windows auth (having added myself as an admin account), it gives this error:

Unable to connect to sql server in network but working fine over VPN

  

Hi,

 

I have a sql server 2005 named instance running on windows 2003. I have an issue  in sql connectivity:

When the client system is in the network, client is not able to connect in management studio to the SQL server without specifiying the port number i.e. tcp: abc\xyz. If the client specifies the port number, he is able to connect to it like tcp:abc\xyz,20001.

Now the strange thing is : The same client system when connected over vpn works fine without specifying the port number in the connection string  like tcp: abc\xyz,20001.

then why is it failing to get the port number when the system is in the network?

I verified sql browser service. it is running fine. Firewall is in stopped state. What new components would come into picture over vpn that allow browser to service the port number? It's pretty strange issue and hence looking for any thoughts.

Note: SPN is not registered for the sql service.

Cannot connect to SSAS production server in customers network

  

Hi,

I have a problem when connecting to the SSAS production server (SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition) of my customer.

The situation is as follows: I have SSMS installed on my computer and also on the production server. On the server the connection to my SSAS/database works fine, but on my machine it doesn't. I am connected through a VPN connection with the customers network. The Windows Firewall is not activated on the Windows Server 2003 SP3 where SSAS is installed on. The connection to the SQL Server Database located on the same server from my machine works fine (via Windows Authentication), but as I said, the connection to SSAS does not. As we have different Windows Domains I am logged on with my corporate login (RCG\alexander.greiner) on my machine and connected through VPN with the administrative credentials (CUSTOMER\myadmin) I got from my customer.

Following error message is displayed when I try to connect to the remote SSAS in my customers network: "A connection cannot be made. Ensure that the server is running. (Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient)"

Do you have any ideas on how I can solve this problem?

Regards,
Alex
